Galileo Pre-K Online: Linking Planning, Individualization, and Program Enhancements

ATI spent last week in Nashville at one of the largest conferences designed specifically for early childhood educators, the NHSA Annual Conference. We were thrilled to connect with so many preschool educators, researchers, and teachers at the conference. In case we missed speaking with you at the conference, we wanted to share what so many people were excited to hear about. 

Galileo Pre-K Online, is a research-based assessment, curriculum, and reporting system reflecting early childhood state standards, school readiness goals, and the Head Start Child Development and Learning Framework. It’s a complete system linking planning, individualization, and program enhancements. Here’s a snap shot of some of the features and services offered through Galileo Pre-K Online:

Galileo G3 Alignment with Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework 
The Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework: Ages Birth to Five outlines and describes the skills and behaviors that programs should foster in all children, including infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. ATI has completed an analysis of the most recent framework and developed a document illustrating the alignment of the Galileo G3 scales with the framework. The Galileo G3 scales are included in Galileo Pre-K Online. We appreciate the opportunity to continue supporting Head Start partner programs offering stimulating learning experiences for young children and preparing them to be ready for school. 

Outcomes Analysis Report 
The Outcomes Analysis Report was designed specifically to address the needs of Head Start programs. This report allows programs to analyze progressive data for one or several of the Galileo G3 assessment scales over multiple time periods in one report. The report may include aggregated and disaggregated data for an entire program, center, class or at the individual child level. 

Galileo School Readiness Scales 
Share child development goals and progress with families of program participants more easily with updated Galileo School Readiness Scales available in both English and Spanish. Galileo School Readiness Scales are reporting tools that provide reliable assessment of children’s development to inform educational decision-making. 

Learning on Demand Professional Development Sessions 
All Galileo users can take part in free, online Learning on Demand professional development sessions. New sessions are regularly added and cover a wide range of subjects. Recent topics include “Are Your Children Ready for School?” and “Galileo Parental Toolkit for Spanish-Speaking Parents.” Whether you are new to Galileo or you have been using Galileo for years, you are sure to benefit from these short, online training sessions. Plus, if you can’t attend the live session, Learning on Demand sessions are recorded and can be accessed easily from the Galileo Help files.

If you didn’t make it to the Conference, give us a call and we can chat about how Galileo Pre-K Online might be just the right fit for your preschool. Call one of our friendly Field Services Coordinators at 1.877.358.7611 or email us at Let’s chat today.
